A person could also:

1) Take a screenshot of the file if only the data on it is important
2) Attach the file with a .txt extension (instead of .xls) so we all can just download it and change it back on our comps

The problem is that the graphics can not be converted into text

See my picture of the Kattilia excel sheet.

The secret is that changing the extension does not change the essence of the file.  It only changes the extension BUT you must change it back to .xls before opening it.

Having a .txt extension prevents people from ACCIDENTALLY triggering viruses when say viewing the attachment in a forum.
